Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) - 04
(Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) - 04) There are about 60 species of milkweed in the United States, and they grow in all 48 contiguous states. The name of the milkweed came from the sticky white latex juice, which is in all parts of the plant.  The juice was used by the Native Americans to help solve lactation problems in nursing mothers, and by early settlers as a glue.  This photo shows the flower buds at the top of the milkweed plant and open blooms below.

lamb-right lamb-left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
